Boat US reports that in a multiple-choice opinion poll of the association?s more than half-million power and sailboat-owning members asking for their Christmas gift wishes, a new Global Positioning System (GPS) was the #1 choice with 22% of all votes, while ?a new boat? and ?foul weather gear,? came in second and third, respectively.
Additionally, a remarkable 36% admitted they had been bad and would expect nothing from Santa this year.
?From this data we can assume that ?good? boaters don?t like being lost, and also enjoy being aboard shiny new boats in the rain,? said BoatUS spokesman Scott Croft.
